Bollywood Actor Irfan Khan passed away on Wednesday in Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital.

The actor hospitalized on April 28 evening and kept in the ICU because of a colon infection. He was 53. Irfan Khan survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons Babli Khan and Ayan Khan.

The news comes just two days after the actor’s mother Saeda Begum breathed her last on Saturday in Jaipur where she used to stay.

However, owing to the ongoing lockdown, the actor could not physically attend his mother’s last rites and reportedly paid his last respect through video conferencing.

Irfan Khan last seen in Homi Adajania’s comedy film Angrezi Medium, the last-released Bollywood film before COVID-19 forced the complete shutdown of cinema halls.

He was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in March 2018 and a few days later, he left for London for his treatment. He returned to India in February 2019 and filmed Angrezi Medium during his brief visit. A couple of months later, he flew to London to continue the treatment and returned to India after his surgery in September 2019.

Bollywood actors also condoled over his death.

Filmmaker Soojit Sarkar, who worked with IrfanKhan in the film Piku (2015) took to Twitter to condole the actor’s sudden demise.
